Matt Coops – Loathing by imogenenebyl

Matt Coops describes his music as a “gritty analog-y boom-bap revival of 90’s Hip-Hop”. With that flavour of rap instrumentals in mind, Matt Coops loops his samples and shifts the pitch of the heavy beats throughout loathing (a title referring to the mad flick ‘Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas’). The track holds a cool rawness to it that we sometimes miss out on in polished compositions.

Gordy Micheal invites your mind on a warped quest through aural space with his ambient beats. Comfort evokes the true feelings of being comfortable and allures you into a chilled-out mood. The soft piano brings an early 1920’s jazz vibe to the piece. No longer than 2 minutes, his tracks are short yet golden.

For their seventh volume The Beatfonics Crew wanted to explore the world of Blaxploitation movement, an African-American film genre that emerged in the United States in the ‘70s, but also a music genre, given the significant quantity and quality of soundtracks recorded and the high level of the composers.

I love me a concept album- especially a concept beats album. This Beatfonics Crew mix-tape is dope.

Terracotta Blue – Other Eden by Chris

Terracotta Blue, producer from Washington DC, transmits his enthusiasm for chill wave and trip hop by creating his own unique fusion of heavenly samples and delicate drums.  His latest album Shine Again is a collection of radiant beats that fill my soul with love.

Other Eden, the last and certainly not least track of Shine Again, harmoniously completes this blissful album through its modulating dynamics. The heart-warming track takes you on a luminous and joyful voyage through layers of satisfying sounds. Constantly developing, this beat evolves from minimal to decorative, and then to the pleasant repetition of a woodwind descending perfect fourth (oh so satisfying). The tension is re-heightened through a rousing crescendo of percussion until the snare sneaks in and truly hits the spot. This kind of drop had me gasping and laughing in awe of its pure perfection all the way to the smooth fade out.

The whole 10-track album is available for a pick-your-price download on Bandcamp.



O D S – Dirty Socks Vol. 3 by Chris

San Francisco producer/MC Old Dirty Socks (or LO his rap alias) is an imminent artist from the US who is gaining popularity globally, having worked with Aussie legend Ta-Ku on a compilation project Night Swimmers as well as names like Prof. Logik, Fonetik Simbol and Venezuela’s Doktor Rheal to name a few. Releasing both instrumental beats as well as a few vocal tracks, ODS is a versatile musician with a clear passion for hip hop that manifests in his composition, both production and flow.

Dirty Socks Volume Three is the perfect combination of raw hip-hop percussion under and evocative jazzy melodies. The irresistible vinyl crackle and nostalgic vibes of each beat hold the album together to create a natural and effortless story through a warm selection of classic 70s soul samples. Similar to Apollo Brown and Mattron who have that same filtered soul style. The seemingly seamless flow of each track as well as that chopped vinyl/trip hop sound we all dig make this an accessible album over which to spit rhymes and jam, two-step with your lover, or just to bop your head to and max out. Not your typical neck snapping beats; the album is a delightful mixture of subtle beat drops and boom bap drums.

Kid Deep – Shake It Up by Chris

Aside from having the best Soundcloud bio description ever “I can’t wait ’til this set is over, ‘cuz I’ve got a roll of Lifesavers in my pocket, and pineapple is next..” Perth’s Kid Deep produces some pretty fresh sample-heavy beats.



Yoshimitsu – Bugz (Kaligraph E remix) by Chris

I used to have crazy amounts of fun playing as Yoshimitsu in Tekken because he had this one move where he’d stab himself. I was such a sadistic little shit back in my childhood I’d play the game as him just to watch Yoshimitsu stab himself in the gut over and over for my own enjoyment.

Anyway, that’s completley irrelevant when discussing this particular Yoshimitsu collective. Blaster Master displays future-beat at it’s finest; a perfect blend of Fly-Lo style syncopation and engaging sounds. Marisa Tomei shows a subtle hint of down-tempo romanticism and tranquil repose. I’m posting Kaligraph E‘s harder remix of Bugz from a few months back though. It’s a stand out.

You can check out some free downloads if you like what you head from their soundcloud.
